"The truth is, slavery touches the lives of most of us in this room every day through the supply chains of the goods and services we purchase. Do you own a telephone or a computer, clothing, shoes? Do you drink coffee or tea? Do you wear jewellery or makeup? Do you buy seafood, pet food, meat, fruit, vegetables or eat fast food?"  John McCarthy QC is Chair of the Sydney Archdiocesan Antislavery Task Force. An edited collected of keynotes, workshops and presentations, including this one is included in the newly published book, Serving Communities with Courage and Compassion, out now
